Are you looking for an exciting and unexpected Fringe-like theatre experience in the heart of Adelaide?
Red Phoenix Theatre and Holden Street Theatres have created an ingenious solution - A Promenade of Shorts - a unique COVID-inspired mini-festival of tiny plays!
Showcasing an inspired collection of engaging 10-minute-plays, each evening will see three separate audiences rotate through the three primary venues of Holden Street Theatres (The Studio, The Arch and The Box Bar) until they have viewed all nine plays.
As audience members arrive, during the intervals and as they promenade between the performance spaces, an array of unusual characters will add a touch of fun and brush with the bizarre!
Expect to be surprised as you may find yourself being entertained by a marionette named Albert, or amongst the first Australians offered a free trial COVID vaccine, and perhaps witness an unlikely speak-off between Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy and Julia Gillard!
Red Phoenix Theatre's Artistic Director, Michael Eustice says, "Many of the greatest joys in creating theatre come from overcoming obstacles which, to begin with, seem insurmountable. The idea for A Promenade of Shorts began like this. As COVID guidelines limited us to a maximum of 30 people in a venue, we asked ourselves the question, "But what if we have three venues?"
A Promenade of Shorts is set to be a wonderful evening of creative delight for all to enjoy! Come and join Red Phoenix Theatres and Holden Street Theatres as they return to the Adelaide stage this October.
